HoudahSpot 6.0

You know I hate looking for a needle in a haystack. We’ve got better things to do with our time and for year’s HoudahSpot has been that tool we use on top of Apple’s Finder to get really drill in. The good news is that it recently got an update. HoudahSpot 6 has added support for Macs with Apple silicon processors, giving you the best performance on the latest Mac hardware.

This update includes:

  • A plug-in for Apple Mail that allows HoudahSpot to include Mail message files in your search results.

  • The Tag Cloud, which lists your favorite file tags as well as all the tags found in the current search results. It also shows the number of occurrences of each tag.

  • Powerful filters to help you focus on relevant files by only showing you a subset of the search results, show only those that share a common property, and filter files by name, path, and folder names.

  • Arranged results to help break up search results into manageable chunks, such as by date, size, kind, or application.

  • Sharing a search that you can send to a colleague or friend.

My congratulations to team Houda on a solid update, HoudahSpot 6.0.
